  • NS, not significant; —, effect does not apply.

  • a Y, P, B, H, and S are abbreviations used in the interaction terms for year, parent, backcross level, hybridity, and subpopulation, respectively.

  • b In/out and N/S (north/south) refer to the staggered position of subplots in 1997.

  • c Calculated as the square root of the subplot mean square error plus block variance.
